CALLED TO INHERIT BLESSING, NOT BURDENS
1 Peter 3 vs
»»9.¶Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing.-[KJV]«« ||
THE CALL to Christianity is the highest calling ever on earth. There is no other call better than that. That’s why if you are not born again today, you must do it now, because you are missing a lot of ‘goodies’. Hallelujah, we are called to inherit blessings, not burdens or sufferings. Contrary to popular belief that says ‘Christianity is complicated’. It is only complicated to those who see Christianity in the lens of religion, tradition, law or legalism and ignorance.
Christianity is an intimate relationship with God whereby the Creator extends His love and grace to fallen mankind who have to believe and receive by faith what grace has provided through Christ Jesus. Beloved, that’s a blessing ! Come to think of it, you couldn’t pay for your own sins; you couldn’t save yourself; you couldn’t make yourself righteous; you couldn’t heal yourself; but scripture makes us understand that Jesus Christ has done all these for you free of charge. You have to just come to Him and enjoy these blessings. In Christ, you are called to enjoy the more abundant life, not burdens. He takes away the burden or load of sin, failure, poverty, ignorance, death etc. (Isaiah 53:3-5;Mat 11:28;John 10:10).
Cherished one, know that there are more than enough troubles in the world and Christianity is not here to add to them. Be more conscious of the truth that Christ has come to make life better for us than we could ever make for ourselves. You are blessed so you can render blessings to your world. Jesus said emphatically in Matthew 11:29,30.. that His yoke is easy, and His burden is light, so learn from him. Stop following and learning from your own ways. Your own ways will lead you to frustrations. His ways will cause the eyes of your understanding to be enlightened; so that you can know how to enjoy this blessing (Ephesians 1:17,18). Spend quality time to study God’s Word, pray in the Holy Spirit and God will show you how to enjoy these blessings. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you always.
Thank You Faithful Father for calling me into your Kingdom to inherit blessings. I declare I am blessed to be a blessing. Today, I am inheriting every blessing You have laid for me in every aspect of my life in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen !
Enjoy A Blissful Tuesday !
